Before the 1st edition of the Textbook of Pediatric Emergency Medicine published, there was no official pediatric emergency medicine subspecialty in either pediatrics or emergency medicine. This book defined many of the treatments, testing modalities procedural techniques and approaches to care for the ill and injured child. As such, it was written with both the pediatrician and the emergency physician in mind. The Textbook of Pediatric Emergency Medicine, has an entirely new editorial board and templated chapters focusing on evidence-based diagnosis and management of pediatric patients in the ED. The book’s content has been rewritten to eliminate and eliminate redundancy, creating succinct sections that pertain to patient care in the ED. Templated chapters include: Clinical Outcomes/Goals of Therapy Current Evidence Clinical Considerations Clinical Recognition: Triage Initial Assessment Management/Diagnostic Testing Clinical indications for discharge or admission, including parental instructions References In the ED, nurses and physicians work closely as a paired team, thus this edition reflects that partnership and offers content tailored to it. Online ancillaries, found in the bundled eBook, include Learning Links for nursing considerations and clinical pathways that outline the key steps to take when managing critically ill patients.
